A healthier alternative for bubbletea addicts~ Quite an addictive drink, with thick and smooth yogurt blended with a generous amount of purple rice which added a natural burst of sweetness and a nice chew to the drink.

The yogurt is said to be made in-house, and the taste kind of reminded me of Meiji mixed berries yogurt.

Orders were via a self-service kiosk-opted for less sugar (there didn't seem to be any option for no sugar) and the sweetness level was just right. This was a rather heavy drink that can actually serve as a meal replacement (there's rice in it anyway haha) or as a dessert to share (like pulut hitam?🤔) .

Featuring the use of matcha powder from The Matcha Project , this was one that guarantees repeated visits. Incredibly smooth and luscious is the mouthfeel of the latte, the matcha distinct without any unwanted astringency. Having had my fair share of Matcha Lattes, its tough finding one where the matcha and milk blends together so harmoniously and all of these at an incredibly affordable price of $5 ☺️ .

The ice blend is really refreshing and suitable for the scorching hot weather. But as playmade's pearls are quite chewy by themselves, the lower temperature made the pearls even chewier and hence if you don't really want too much of a jaw workout perhaps this drink isn't really for you!

0% sugar and less ice! Its been quite some time since i ordered the matcha latte at koi (or any bbtea shop for that matter) because well, they don't really do their matcha latte very well. I think so far, the bbtea places that do a surprisingly good matcha drink would be jenjudan.

Anyway, i don't really know why but they don't allow you to have konjac jelly as a topping option for the matcha latte. If i'm not wrong, only the golden bubble is allowed. I think it has something to do with the gradient of the latte? I'll ask again next time 😅

Thankfully @xingfutangsg exercised better customer service than I initially encountered and offered me a replacement drink for the disappointment i encountered the previous visit.
As can be seen, the drink definitely fared better in terms of aesthetics at least this time, and the brown sugar pearls were at least served warm. But overall the drink was simply too milky and creamy and the brown sugar taste lacking, though detectable.
Ultimately I still stand by my verdict (personal preference) that this isn't worth my $$ and time 😅

Not sure if you’ve seen my recent instastories about @xingfutangsg , which i travelled all the way from the west to the east to get their Brown Sugar Boba Milk ($5.30) because my friend who had it overseas (and also those who bought from the taka popup store) gave rave reviews, but please don’t make the same mistake as me and waste your time lol. There’s so many brown sugar drinks out there that beats this hands down.

I was so glad when i reached because there didn’t seem much of a queue and i got my drink within 5mins but after my 1st sip i could clearly tell why??? This was such a sorry excuse of a brown sugar drink. Taste not there, aesthetics not there. “Brown sugar” pearls weren’t warm and were way too soft and not chewy. I saw other drinks being prepared at least had the brown sugar aesthetics and looked more promising so i gave feedback about my drink and all i received was a sorry excuse of how mine looked like that because all the brown sugar had been mixed in. Asked if they could at least put more brown sugar in my drink (not remake a new one or anything) and was rejected wow.

Light and refreshing, the yuzu is perfect for chilling on a hot day, or serving as a nice accompaniment to whichever heavier dessert you are having. Its not too sweet and there's the fun factor of getting to chew on the yuzu peel. I did think that the drink seemed a little too watered-down though

At matchaya, customers can opt to go for oat milk in replacement of the usual fresh milk in their drinks for an additional $1. The choice of oat milk is perfect for those needing dairy-free/gluten-free/vegan options!

Tried the koicha milk previously with fresh milk, and went for oat milk this time round instead out of curiosity. I ended up preferring the version made with oat milk though.

Not sure why, but it just felt smoother and creamier and a little less astringent too. However, the additional topup made this drink cost a whopping $8.50. Talk about burning a hole in my wallet..

Asked for it to be less sweet and the sweetness level was just right for me. I generally dislike redbeans, especially with my matcha stuff, and this was no exception, with a clear preference for just the normal matcha milk.

Thought that the azuki would come in the super thick, paste kind, but it was actually more of like actual azuki grains, and there was even the skin of the azuki beans with it

Ordering coffee for the coffee art once again 😅 No coffee expert but i enjoyed sipping on coffee which was velvety smooth and rich with a subtle sweetness😊

Taro came in a mashed/paste form that was really thick, coupled with the fresh milk, this was really one filling drink 😹 Would have preferred to have some taro bits to chew on instead for some added textures though, and the drink was a tad too sweet.. I personally would stick to Yi Fang's Taro Latte which is lower on the sweetness level and has better textures

One of their bestseller drink, and its not hard to see why. For the fickle minded and undecisive, this drink is truly the best of both world, marrying the likes of matcha and hojicha.

While the other lattes can be customised to be without sugar, thats not possible for this drink, as the flavour of the hojicha is brought in through the use of hojicha syrup. It is possible, however, to request for less sugar (which i also recommend!😊)
